Spring Storms

Spring is known for its surprises. My husband took these shots of birds surviving a final (hopefully) snowstorm.


This house finch fluffs its feathers in anticipation of a change in the weather. The prediction…snow.


Below, a robin joins him after the storm. And a whole lot of that robin’s buddies flock to our lilac bushes as well.



Such long migrations, only to wait out the cold. But spring often bears surprises.





At this time of year, this might be the last storm – maybe  the birds realize this, too.

  1. The birds look so fluffy when they’re trying to keep warm. The robin looks like a balloon about to pop 🙂 Nice to see the house finch. I’m on the east coast, and I’ve never seen one. They’re all pretty.
